Ryan Holloway submitted this image. I like the feel of it in black-and-white. Ryan darkened the background window scene but that has created some problems by leaving a random wisp of white, go ahead and clone that out. The photo is the man's face, beard and expression, cropping it just below the beard would keep the focus on him instead of the partial hand. Overall the image has some character but could be so much more. With no data from the camera I would suggest Ryan go back to the original file and work on it using Lightroom which allows a lot of creative control especially for a black and white image. More tonal detail in the shadows would add to the image. This is a great start.
